Great blue heron profile in Autumn for Wordless Wednesday.

For the months of September and October, the Great Blue Herons are featured on the walls of the Natick Town Hall, located at 13 East Central Street in Natick, MA. Feel free to stop in during office hours Monday thru Wednesday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm; Thursday 8:00 am – 7:00 pm; Friday 8:00 am – 12:30 pm
.

Thanks to Cee for her recent CFFC: Pastel Colors. The autumn leaves are muted, not yet at peak vibrancy.

Thanks to Dawn for her recent Festival of Leaves: Week 5. This Great Blue Heron is in the habit of following the sunlight as it moves across the cove, much the way a cat will seek out puddles of sun indoors.

Thanks to Erica V and WordPress for the recent WPC: Place in the World. My favorite place is where the Herons are, of course it is. And the Herons? Their place is near the water, but also on the gallery walls and my blog. How else can I share them with you?

Thanks also to Ben H and WordPress for their WPC Challenge: Liquid. The Herons are drawn to water, as am I.

From May 1 through July 11, 2018, my Great Blue Heron photographs once again graced the walls of the lobby and theater in a free one-woman show at the Summer Street Gallery, of The Center for Arts in Natick. If you’re in the Boston or Metro West area, please stop by to see the current gallery show at TCAN. The gallery is open whenever the box office is open, so please check hours here.
.

Through July 13, 2017 I was a Featured Artist at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area. Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

To Love Is – Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines, Wordless Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, Sue’s Word A Week: Mistake,  and Cee’s Black and White

To love is not to look at one another: it is to look, together, in the same direction.

Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines and Patterns nudge. (I like the lines and patterns of the ripples of falling water.)

Thanks to Cee Neuner and WordPress for the Black and White Photo Challenge: Animals nudge. (Which do you prefer, the full color or the B&W version?)

And also to Sue Llewellyn for the Word A Week: Mistake challenge. (Did you find the “mistake” in this photo? It’s from the days of real film, and the film failed to advance, and this double-exposure resulted.)

And thanks also to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.

Lastly, thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday prompt.

Twelve Minutes of Twilight – Wordless Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and Cee’s Color Purple

The first wave of incoming ducks approaches the great blue heron.

For twelve minutes they arrived non-stop…

Even more incoming ducks approaching the great blue heron as twilight deepens.

…in wave after wave as twilight deepened.
